Bertil Jean-Chronberg came to my house for our third Dégustation de Vins. He was as informative, interesting, and tasty as the previous times. It is astonishing how profound and complete his knowledge is. He can distinguish more in one sip of wine than we would know if we read an article on the wine! My students were riveted and eager to grasp every word, even though some words were technical and over their heads, since the presentation was entirely in French.
For tonight’s Dégustation, he selected effervescent wines from France that were not champagne. Comments by the students will follow in the next post.
